Quilt Finishes!

June was a great month to dive into the scrap bins & UFO’s and see what we could get done.

My Jacob’s Ladder queen size quilt (see more here) is now finished!

All scraps except my purple & yellow half square triangles which are Whimsey Doosie, this Michael Miller print.  Simple quilting really lets the pattern do the talking, I think.  I bound it in a scrappy binding just to finish off the effect.  The backing is a great Thimbleberries backing.

I dove back into the scraps on the 4th of July & decided a Log Cabin was in order.  I find these blocks addicting.  Can’t put them down.  In a week, I had 56 blocks, all squared up, 12.5”.  Once that was done, I was able to walk away.  I played with layout & decided the traditional diamond was how I would play it.

Then, as my UFO finishing luck would have it, a friend was in the shop looking for fabric to make a gentleman a quilt in a hurry.  She works with a local church group making Prayers & Squares (that rhymes in the south Smile) quilts.  I finished my UFO by giving her my blocks.  Wow, that was an easy finish!  I enjoy the block making best anyway!

I also got a jelly roll quilt that I pieced last summer finally finished


Same simple quilting pattern as the Jacob’s Ladder.


Don’t forget, we are hosing a Scrap Quilt Challenge right now!  Get your scrappy quilts finished up & enter!  More details here:
